The association was created in 1996 by individual entrepreneurs, whose goal was to support and develop businesses in the Rivne region. The association organizes seminars and educates local business owners on economic, financial, and legal issues. It represents local businesses in the Business Council, which was created on the initiative of association members as part of the governor's office in Rivne.

The association founded an analytical center, which conducts marketing research and distributes information to businesses throughout the region free-of-charge, thanks to grants from the Eurasia Foundation and USAID. It protects the rights of business owners in court, and was the first organization to take the mayor of Rivne to court. The association works with the Ukrainian parliament and regional mass media. Members of the association have regular columns in local newspapers, and they are currently working on installing modem connections everywhere in the region in order to distribute information more efficiently.
